The purpose of the project investigates the mechanical characterization of single lap joints namely bonded, riveted & hybrid joints an experimentally and numerically. One of the primary entanglements in the investigation of the mechanics of the composite material is the multiphase disappointment conduct. In the meantime, it is hard to describe all the disappointment modes from a solitary situated example. The outcome of the present venture uncovers the way that the mechanical attributes of the half breed single lap joint is enhanced when contrasted and the qualities of adhesively fortified single lap joints in composite cover. The structure comprises of a get together of sub-structures appropriately masterminded and associated with frame a heap transmission way. Such load transmission way is accomplished utilizing joints. Joints constitute the weakest zones in the structure. Along these lines, to use the maximum capacity of composite materials, the quality and stress conveyance in the joints must be seen so reasonable arrangement can be decided for different applications, for example, aviation, car and marine enterprises.
